i must have missed this post.
hmm, strange one as rainbows lay small easily munched eggs.
could they have been from something else in the tank?

thanks for your cconcern guys! it may have been form the rainbows, as they looked like it, but nothing else apart form the corys themselves are breeding. but the eggs were far to small to be cory eggs.

I'd guess cory eggs, unless you have snails in the tank. Were they stuck to the glass?

Hey

Unlike the majority of Corydoras the beautiful Corydoras panda rarely spawn by attaching their eggs to glass or plants. Instead they prefer to use artificial spawning mops as an egg deposit site.

I'm in Malta mate, that makes it almost impossible for a change. Here they go for €6.50 from an LFS, less from a breeder - I don't know your market though

hahaha that would be a very large challenge as im in England! our market is up and down, but the 3 cories i bought were £5.50 each. for around a 3-4 cm specimen. some shops have them at around £4-£5 yet others have them priced at £8-£9 each! my local maidenhead aquatics is the best on quality and price, and he can get almost anything form zebra plecos to rare discus and cichlids, but at a steep price lol! whats ur market like?

well fish have made it here...including some Dragon Bettas which just spawned, and I have to wait till Feb to buy some from a friend /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> well we have 6 main LFS, and other shops which cater for the "mass fish" - guppies, mollies, goldfish, you get the drift.

Well here you can find Motoros, Arowanas, discus, oddballs like channa etc, and some LFS even try to get you what you want, usually at a bit of steep price though. Fish come in from Asia & Germany and maybe Italy. Although there is variety, I prefer buying from a breeder - 100% sure they're disease free, and they're quality fish, cause the LFS fish rarely have a history or anything.
